October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month, and Ohioans with disabilities now have a free, easy way to search for jobs and access information about a variety of work-related resources. Working in tandem with OhioMeansJobs.com, OhioMeansAccessibility.com will help job seekers with disabilities post resumes, search for jobs and more.
“The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services is committed to expanding employment opportunities for all Ohioans,” said Ohio Department of Job and Family Services Director Cynthia C. Dungey. “Whether you are looking to start a business, grow your business, begin a new career or take advantage of a job-training course, OhioMeansAccessibility.com can help.”
After posting a resume at OhioMeansJobs.com, job seekers with disabilities can indicate whether they would like to be referred to employers specifically looking to hire individuals with disabilities. The website also offers information about starting a business, building financial assets, work incentive programs, transitioning from school to work, health care and more.
For employers, the site offers a wealth of information about hiring incentives, workplace accommodations, employment law, and engaging a qualified and diverse workforce.
